Opera history saving limitations... Can the library be allowed to keep expanding?

  • I'm afraid to "upgrade" to the latest version. No tab stacking, might lose bookmarks, unintuitive.

    There's nothing to be afraid of. If you simply install the latest version, it co-exists just fine with the old Presto version(s), by design. That is, it doesn't replace or interfere with an old version. So you can at least try it out and see. The developmental version (currently 25) has a bookmarks manager, though it needs refinement yet, IMO... and the latest build of 25 now has a built-in PDF viewer (hurray!).

  • Is the file called "Opera_NI_stable.exe"?

  • It's kind of confusing having a file named "OperaNIstable.exe" when is was usually "Opera ##.## Setup".

  • Yea I doubt that the developers would make this change for the Presto versions.

  • I tried Opera 25 and just couldn't work with it. Too many features including tab stacking are gone. Meanwhile my library diminishes because of the limitations.

  • I have now lost over a year of saved is sad and frustrating.

  • just i have lost 2000 save pages.. any way to get them back? no i dont think so... f u opera

    What do you mean by saved pages? And what is the relation with history?

    Anyway, this is a suggestion forum and not a place to ask for help. So please use the appropriate opera products forum.

  • I said the wrong term when I said "Saved Pages". I meant pages that are in my long History, which I use as part of my library. There is no other way to do so that I know of except drag the icon at the beginning of the address bar to a folder for every page I want to "keep", but that isn't really practical. I should have aside from asking if the History cap be removed suggested it be removed so long as my computer has the space.

  • The limit probably exists not (only) because of disk space but mainly because of performance. If all history, since the beginning, were kept then there may be a increase in startup time, among other issues.

    Btw, how long is (or should be) your history?

  • My history I started in late 2012 and as of now it goes back to late 2013. A lot of loss. There rightfully should be a way for this issue to be dealt with by somebody.

  • If you are talking about 12.16, maybe it has reached the limit of entries?
